Subject:Today's boot fair stuff
Time:08:15 pm
A Pentax Spotmatic and four Takumar lenses, all in very good condition and three (28/3.5, 135/2.8 and 200/3.5) complete with caps, filters, hoods, and cases. The fourth is a 50/1.4, which ought to be a very nice little earner and I suspect will pay for the whole lot; it doesn't have a case, but I've got a cloth bag for storage.
A Zenit with another Helios 58mm F2 lens, also in good condition and very cheap.
An iSight firewire camera, unfortunately no cables or stands but pretty cheap and works.
Some cables
and a couple of toys for various grand-nephews etc.

Spent more than I usually do, but I'm pretty sure I'll do well from it.

Meanwhile one of the Diana Lomography cameras I'm selling (which I can best describe as a cheaply made plastic toy) has been bid up from 99p to £26. Sometimes I really don't understand this stuff at all...

Takumars, Super-Takumars or SMC Takumars? Is the 135mm really f2.8? Those are normally f3.5 or f2.5.

the 1.4/50 and 3.5/28 are Super-Takumar
the 3.5/200 is a manual Takumar
the 2.5/135 (you were right) is SMC Takumar

Right-oh. The 135/2.5 is not common - it was a lot more expensive back in the day - but I'm not sure how many people are after them these days.

No idea, but the 200mm has 15 bids within an hour of listing and is on £32, so I'm definitely not going to be losing money...

I vaguely remember Diana cameras, and like some recent pictures that are taken with (Russian?) plastic lens cameras.

The original Lomo cameras were Russian, but Lomography is now this huge sprawling thing with most of the cameras made in China.
